We've just opened up the pre-oders for the Melody vinyl over at Plastiq Musiq. If you don't know about this historic album, you should! It is a beautiful utopian vision made with a Roland TB-303, Juno-106, TR-909, MC-202 and who knows what else! This album changed my life in a big way. We're so excited to help bring this dream to life. Check it out!

Years ago, while I was still working at Disney, one night after a long day of doing puppet shows at Disney's Hollywood Studios (then still called MGM studios) my dear friend and co-worker, Keith, asked me if I'd like to go to Epcot with him and watch the fireworks. I never turned down watching the fireworks at Epcot. So we went and we found a nice place to watch them from in front of the Japanese pavilion. Keith got a glass of plumb wine. I'd never had plumb wine before so I got one too. And I loved it! I hate the taste of most alcohol, but plumb wine is pretty sweet and sort of tastes like what I would imagine wine would taste like in Narnia.
So last night Peter and I were having dinner at the Japanese restaurant around the corner and I ordered a glass of plum wine. I took a sip and was like "Whoa, Epcot!" and I said "Peter, I think having a glass of plum wine is like a little taste of Epcot." and he had a sip and agreed. And we also both agreed that plum wine tasted vaguely educational, just like Epcot.

I really like these videos where someone makes an entire song with just one synthesizers. They really give you an idea of what it's capable off. Also, I think (on and off) that I might like to get an SH-1000 someday. Because it was Roland's first synthesizer ever, I feel like there must be some special magic in it. Does anyone have one and have an opinion?
